I love fishing for Walleyes! I have never had much luck anywhere in Oregon. I do most of my fishing for walleyes in Minnesota, great fishing out there!

Accidental catch

Accidental catch

I was trolling for Salmon two weeks ago and wasn't paying attention to where I was and the next thing I knew I was in about 20 feet of water and panic set in; I had about 125 feet of line out with 1 oz. of weight my rod started bouncing and I figured I was on the bottom. So I picked up my rod and the bottom started pulling back, low and behold a Walleye. Talk about being surprised, it wasn't very big (12") but even at that size it had a set of teeth. I can't imagine what a 25 incher would look like. Does the ODFW regulate the catch on these introduced fish? If it has only been a year since they were put in there these fish are doing just fine.
I was dragging a night crawler with a special Koke rig I got from a member on this site, thanks Troutski. Even though it wasn't meant for Walleyes it worked just fine.

In the state I fish walleye 29" is a pig! Only got one around that size, & hopefully she is still making babies. Developing the OR walleye fishery is good news since they are easy to catch and very tasty. I like to eat em under 20" as I've heard the big uns aren't as good. Walleye, smallmouth, & panfish seem to co-exist in the same environments and probably eat each other!

I don't think odfw put walleye in Lookout Point. I'm pretty sure they do not want them in there. I think someone illegally put them in there. That's what I got out of the article in the Register Guard.

You can Catch walleye MANY different ways. My favorite are trolling perch or shad colored crankbaits, Jig Drifting with worms. Or fishing with Scaulpin Lookin Baits. (Hook Jig) So I caught my 3 walleye at the sandy delta I was fishing The larger Kastmaster and I felt my line go up so I set it and Whamo! I had A Walleye. My daddy was happy.

I love walley fishing, but haven't done any in Oregon yet, just waiting for the right opportunity. I've done most of my serious fishing fore walley in Canada.

Yeppp. The best Places to go walleye fishing here are in the east colombia where mcnary lake is. Profesional walleye fisherman Ed Iman (Look it up) Goes there and takes people on guided trips and they always catch something. Also there are a lot of walleye clubs here.So Have fun and join a club.

Well I heard that Columbia will produce the worlds next biggest walleye. The current walleye record is 22lbs and the record here is 19lbs. There could very easily be a Giant lurking in the waters. there always is. I want to catch it!

So in other words. Has anyone caught walleye from the shore????

My son and I caught a dozen smaller males in the Boradman area at the end of April using jigs and blades.

On Fathers' Day Saturday, my father-in-law and I are booked for a guided bass/walleye trip near Rufus. Am really getting the walleye bug.

Next spring, I am buying a better boat so that I can fish the McNary area or Washington's seep lakes for walleye. (My wife really enjoys their table quality).
